Linear Perspective

The Illusion of Space


Linear perspective1

Linear Perspective

  • Is a drawing technique used for creating an illusion of space where parallel lines converge on the viewer’s horizon line


Attributes of linear perspective

Attributes of Linear Perspective

  • The following items play a major role in creating the illusion of space:

    • Horizon Line: viewer’s point of where the vanishing point lies; distant convergence of the sky and ground

    • Vanishing Point: point where all perspective lines converge

    • Perspective Lines: lines that recede to the horizon line

    • Overlap: objects closer appear in front of distant objects

    • Scale: objects farther away appear smaller than those that are closer

    • Ellipse: circle placed into perspective

    • Atmospheric/Aerial Perspective: object far away appear less distinct, bluer in color and light is reduced
